Ort report, happy dance, a little WIP

So much to report this time!

First my long neglected ort glass...I got to top it up a bit this month.  Seeing as summer didn't see too much action in the stitching department. And to celebrate a happy dance that I am also reporting this post is my Hungarian dancing girl.  Doesn't she look striking beside all those orts?

My happy dance....Finished 6 Fatmen last night!  Even added the little snowflake embellishments.  I loved stitching this with the other ladies that were part of the Monday night SAL.  I am so pleased with how it pops on this Colonial Blue fabric.  I still have another piece of the same size that if I choose to one day stitch the 6 Snow Belles I'll do it on that for a matching piece.  We'll see how that goes and if time allows. My problem is that I have sooooo many projects that I want to stitch and |I know that I will never get to them all.  So I go with what feels right at the time. 
6 Fatmen by Lizzie Kate - Stitched on 28 ct Colonial Blue Lugana

In saying that...there is a work in progress that I had forgotten about until I opened one of my project boxes.  So I'm concentrating on this piece to get it finished before I start something else.  I should have plenty of time because hubby is going bow hunting this weekend, and I signed up for IHSW as well, another thing that I haven't done all summer.  So between purging some stuff from yet another closet, I will be doing some power stitching.

YAY!! It looks great, Barbi! Really pops on that blue fabric, too...

Enjoy your stitching time this weekend--I'm so jealous! It's my weekend to work at the library so not much stitching time for me :(

It looks fantastic and I'm glad I wasn't the only one who 'cheated' a little in the final week or so to get it completed. Good luck with all your other WIP's.

A very nice finish and other stiching. I also like the Hungarian dancing girl (I am from Hungary:).
